MEd / EdD: Graduate Programs (Edmonton): Managing Your Citations

Citation Management Tools

RefWorks can be used to gather sources in one place and automatically-generate bibliographies in APA, MLA, Chicago, and many other styles.

Mendeley is another citation management tool and an alternative to RefWorks. It is free up to 2GB of storage. Students are not likely to need more storage than that for their projects. 

Managing Your Search

⇒ Set up a personal EBSCO account
Some of the library's education databases are provided through the EBSCOhost platform. Setting up an EBSCO account enables you to save results and searches, so you can access them later.

1. Select the Sign In link in the purple bar at the top of an EBSCO search screen. 

2. Choose the Sign up link above the user login box.

3. Fill out the form.

  • You can use any email address. It does not have to be your UP address.
  • You do not need to use your UP username and password. 

4. You can sign into your account from within any Ebsco database. Make sure to sign in before you start searching, so you can access any results or searches you saved later on.
